South Africa is a gorgeous country with incredible mountain ranges, deep pools of clear blue water and a bevy of animals. It’s any hiker’s dream destination because there’s so much to see and lots of land to cover. There are a multitude of trails in the country, but here are three to get started.


Golden Gate Highlands Rhebok Hiking Trail

Located in the Free State near Clarens, this trail is a massive one that will take a couple days to complete. For any trail that takes longer than a few hours, it’s best to hire a guide or use a fully charged GPS. A guide can point out the mountain ranges, ravines and safe places to camp along this trail. There will be many moments to capture the beauty of the terrain through a camera lens, so pack your camera for the best shots.


Blyde River Hiking Trail

Even longer than the previous trail, this one will take an estimated five days to complete. It’s located in Mpumalanga and is one of those hikes that can change how you see the world. Visitors will pass through God’s Window and Blyde River Canyon. This is one of the largest canyons in the world. Along the canyon, travelers can see the beautiful fauna that grows alongside, as well as animals that use the canyon and river.


Sentinel Peak Hiking Trail

No hiking trip in South Africa is complete without taking a trail that passes through the Drakensberg mountain range. Travelers must climb ladders against rock faces and maneuver across boulders to reach the peak, but the view is worth it.

Leave Troublesome Rideshare Worries Behind

We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes. Long wait times and confused drivers are just a few bothersome issues that can nag at rideshare users. Need a solution? Ditch rideshares altogether in favor of renting a car on your next trip.
